The ECO Towel is the first-ever Australian made towel using RPET, a soft and absorbent recycled yarn using recycled plastic bottles and fabric cut-offs.
Soft and ultra absorbent, ECO towels are perfect for drying off at the beach or pool. Use at the gym or as a yoga mat! Compact, light weight and easy to roll up.
Reducing the drain on the worlds resources, ECO towels are made with a recycled yarn called RPET – which is made from waste water bottles and fabric off cuts. Each ECO towel keeps approximately 20 waste water bottles out of landfills and our oceans.
Aside from reducing landfill, the production of recycled RPET, has significant environmental advantages. It takes 20,000 litres of water to produce just 1kg of organic cotton. Recycled RPET has a 50% lower carbon footprint than organic cotton. It has also been found that REPET significantly sheds less micro particles than non recycled yarn, when washed (MISTRA). In addition, ECO towels are compressed at very high temperature to trap and bond their micro particles together, to help protect our oceans.
We recommend washing your towel in a mesh bag to prevent any damage.
ECO towels are printed with safe and sustainable water based inks.
Measurements: 80 cm x 146 cm. Weight 0.55 kg.
